Networking Master Class
This presentation infused with not only research but a wealth of tactful, polished tips provides professionals with strategies they can implement as soon as possible. It's typically paired with an hour-long networking opportunity to put their new skills to the test and practice new techniques in a safe environment.
Attendees will learn to polish their elevator speech, discover ways to invigorate a dull conversation (and important skills like the tactful art of interruption), learn how to gracefully exit a conversation, strike up a new one while most importantly learning how to introduce themselves to pack a punch and most importantly how to follow up to nurture that new relationship so it fully blooms.
How to Hire Top Talent (how to legally and effectively interview to save your organization time, headaches and thousands of dollars/lawsuits in hiring errors)
Studies note that every time an employer replaces an employee, the business cost is six to nine months of that employee's salary. So, for an employee earning $40k per year, that's $20,000 to $30,000 spent on recruiting and training the new hire. Of course, costs increase substantially with executive hires. This interactive presentation teaches you to go beyond your gut when interviewing, to maximize each interview to deeply grasp the candidate's ability while learning what's an illegal v. legal question to ask.
